Permit(s) Applied for:
Article 19 Air State Facility
Project is Located:
Jamestown, Chautauqua County
The Department has prepared a draft permit and has made a tentative determination to issue an Air State Facility permit to supplement the applicant's current Title V permit, initially issued on April 13, 2007. The Samuel A. Carlson Generating Station is a municipal electric power generation plant. This permit includes shutting down boiler 11 on January 1, 2012, shutting down boiler 12 by January 1, 2014, updating emission unit and process descriptions for the shutdowns, and modifies particulate and Compliance Assurance Monitoring (CAM) permit conditions that apply to these two boilers. The Title V permit requirements for the other emission sources that are not affected by this permit remain in full force and effect. The conditions in this permit will be incorporated into the Title V permit within one year.
Boiler 12 is subject to the Best Available Retrofit Technology rule (BART), 6 NYCRR Part 249. The facility has decided to permanently shut down boiler 12 on or before January 1, 2014 in order to be exempted from the BART requirements for that unit. Accordingly, by shutting down boiler 12 by January 1, 2014, the facility will not need to install BART or meet the NOx Reasonably Available Control Requirements, 6 NYCRR Part 227-2, which become effective on July 1, 2014. Pursuant to 6 NYCRR Part 249, each BART determination, such as the BART determination set forth in this Notice, will be submitted to the USEPA for approval as a revision to the State Implementation Plan.
Boiler 11 is formally being shutdown on January 1, 2012 with this permit because it will not be used again.
